Save room for dessert at the Cove restaurant! The Hot Chocolate Fondant is divine - so is the restaurant's clifftop location overlooking the Caribbean Sea

It is well worth going to the Cove restaurant for dinner slightly earlier so you can watch the sunset!

Mrs B has been at Blue Waters for 53 of the 56 years that the resort has been open! She used to be the Executive House Keeper and now focuses her attentions on the smaller details. What she doesn’t know about the resort and the island isn’t worth knowing!

Location & Directions


Blue Waters is wrapped around Soldiers Bay, one of Antigua’s most exclusive residential areas, and means that guests enjoy unrivalled privacy. On the cusp of the Caribbean Sea, the hotel’s bay provides calm and quiet waters for swimming. The west facing orientation gives guests the enjoyment of the sun's rays all day, as well as some of the Caribbean’s most breathtaking sunset views.

When to go

Offering warm temperatures throughout the year the Caribbean is a perfect year round destination. With an average of 9 hours sunshine a day the peak season runs from December through to April which is the dry season when you can expect very little rainfall. May to November are the slightly wetter months where you will find an increase in rainfall as the summer season goes on and with that some humidity, however the Summer months are still a great time to travel as the temperatures are hot and the rain tends to come in short heavy bursts but not all day long. The wettest months with the most humidity are September and October and these are the most probable months for hurricanes to occur in the region although many islands have not experienced hurricanes for a number of years. The average daily temperatures range from the mid-seventies in the winter months and mid-eighties in the summertime.
